There is going to be a McDonald’s Coffee Giveaway on my blog! Newsletter subscribers will get all the details first!
I recently discovered that McDonald’s coffee products will now be sold in many grocery stores across Canada. Their McCafé® Take Home Coffee comes in four different formats, including Tassimo and Keurig coffee brewing systems.
In my McDonald’s Mystery Box Reveal video I was personally introduced to the products, as well as some extra fun goodies.
I love that the weekly grocery list has McDonald’s coffee at the top of the list. Hehe…
Sadly I don’t have a Keurig machine but I won’t let that stop me from getting to the coffee!
I was hoping McDonald’s had a decaffeinated version of their coffee for me to test but nope! They sent me their Medium Dark Roast Fine Ground Coffee which means my caffeine addiction will have to continue a little longer. I have been off the caffeine wagon 20 years BTW.
I got out our traditional coffee maker complete with paper filter and got to work. Reg has had this product before and loves it. It was my turn to give it a shot.
The timing was perfect. I had zero sleep the night before and needed “inspiration” to get through the day anyway.
I have to admit something. When I have coffee, I like to treat it like a dessert. Flavoured cream with some sugar…
This was a delicious cup of coffee, damn it! Seriously. I was waiting for the traditional coffee harshness to set me on edge and dislike it but it did not happen. Major flavour without the bitterness.
I started to realize I was in trouble. If this coffee tasted this good, giving it up was not going to be easy.
My second dessert-way to enjoy coffee is as iced coffee which I make all the time. Traditionally 1/2 coffee, 1/2 milk with a tsp of icing sugar blended together with my frother.
Again, fantastic. No brutal bite, just the kind of refreshing iced coffee I was desperate for when we were moving and did not have a kitchen.
In almost every single way I can think of, this coffee is perfect. I hate coffees that are so harsh and bitter they almost hurt to drink. Weak and boring coffees are just as bad. The McCafé® Take Home Coffee hits the mark bang on for those looking for fabulous coffee without the pain. Even Reg said that if there was one coffee he could tolerate black (he loves it sweet), it is this coffee.
The Rating and Full Disclosure
I still deeply believe there should be a decaf option which is why I give this product four and a half out of five wooden spoons. Especially since now I am hooked and am going to go to my kitchen and have another big fabulous creamy mug of this addicting and perfectly balanced coffee.
Please note this is a sponsored post but the opinions expressed here are mine. Had I hated the product, I would have said so but now I am a McCafé® addict. Bloody Hell!
